It was a different way to seat the heats, but not only the tires, but I saw a few guys overgeared big time and just run a couple of laps, that never did equal those lap times the rest of the weekend, just to get in a higher qualifier. A flaw in the system, but anyone that picked that stategy, well, no rules to cover it.

I can tell you, that just about any speed control will benefit from wiring it out this way, and all are capable of doing it. Don't get fooled into the "purple sock" syndrom, just give it a try and learn something. What if it was a Tekin that the CRC guys decided to use instead, but wired that way? Would the debate be more about the software over the hardware?
